Apple has sent out invitations recently for its next big product launch. Although it failed to specify what the event is for, everyone probably knows.
September is a crucial month for the Cupertino brand, as it is usually the time it unveils the latest crop of iPhone models plus several new devices.
At 10:00 a.m. PST in Cupertino, California, Apple will hit the Steve Jobs Theater to introduce its newest devices to the world, chief of them being the much-rumored iPhone 11 lineup. Apple will bid goodbye to the current-generation iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR and usher in the newer models, which according to rumors are called iPhone 11, 11 Max/11 Pro, and 11R.
Below is a handy compilation of everything heard from rumors, alleged leaks, and more. Read on to know what to expect during Apple's biggest event of the year.
iPhone 11 Reveal
iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max Processor: As reported by a number of publications, the newest crop of iPhones will come equipped by Apple's latest A13 processor, and support Face ID, Wi-Fi 6, and reverse wireless charging.
iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max Screen, Battery, Price: The iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max will boast 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch OLED screens, respectively. Both phones will support the Apple Pencil, sport a 12-megapixel selfie camera and 12-megapixel triple-camera setup on the back. The smaller iPhone 11 Pro will boast a 3,190 mAh battery and cost $1,000. The iPhone Pro Max, on the other hand, will get a 3,500 mAh battery and cost $1,100.
iPhone 11: The base iPhone 11, meanwhile, is expected to be the successor to the iPhone XR and as such will boast lower-tier specs compared to its powerhouse siblings. It will get a 6.1-inch LCD screen, 4 GB of RAM, and a 3,110 mAh battery. There will be a dual-camera setup on the back, up from the single-camera configuration on the iPhone XR. It won't work with the Apple Pencil, though. It will start a $749.
Apple Watch: Apart from the iPhone, Apple could reveal a new Apple Watch variant that's not technically a "Series 5." It could merely a shinier upgrade of the Series 4 covered in ceramic or titanium.
MacBook Pro: Apple could also unveil a new MacBook Pro model that rumors say will replace the largest MacBook in Apple's arsenal. It will reportedly have a 16-inch screen but retain the same body as a 15-inch MacBook Pro, achieved by trimming down the bezels. It's also been reported that Apple will use an OLED display for this iteration.
iPad and iPad Pro: Apple is likely to announce updates to the current 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pros that will primarily focus on upgraded camera systems and newer processors. The new iPad is expected to be a more radical step-up from the current model, with Bloomberg saying Apple releasing a 10.2-inch standard iPad and ditching to 9.7-inch variant altogether. Expect internal hardware updates as well, of course.
